The Federation of Ovoshchnoy is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Thaddeus Palmer Ziegler with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.784 billion Ovoshchnoyians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belfast. The average income tax rate is 23.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ovoshchnoyian economy, worth 440 trillion rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 158,365 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government now pays the "Really Awesome Super Heroes" (RASH) to catch evildoers, diplomatic fallout tends to be much more dangerous than radioactive fallout, high school career advisors advise belligerent loners to consider vigilantism, and citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ovoshchnoy's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Rodent.

Ovoshchnoy is ranked 227,654th in the world and 40th in Mirror World for Most Primitive, scoring -258.17 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
